Atlanta Brunch Festival

Saturday, March 5, 2016

Saturday morning started with a trip down to Fourth Ward Park. The new-ish green space next to The Masquerade and across from Ponce City Market was packed as around 6,000 people came out for brunch. One of the best meals of the day, the Atlanta Brunch Festival celebrated just that with over 40 restaurant and food trucks serving up delicious tastings as well as mimosas and bloody marys. Chefs from Another Broken Egg Cafe, Dish Dive, the Atlanta Breakfast Club, Hard Rock Atlanta, and more came out to wow people ready to eat and drink!
